BEND, OR -- Bend Fire responded to 17 calls in just over two hours, Tuesday, during a wind storm that blew through the area from late morning through early afternoon. Officials say there were at least eight calls for down power lines, many of them in the same area. A large stretch along Northeast Third Street lost power until lines could be repaired.

 

A wind-driven field fire swept across eight acres; it was spread by embers from a previous debris burn and didn't cause any damage. Several cars were destroyed when trees came down. No major injuries were reported. 

 

Bend Fire reminds drivers to avoid areas where power lines are down. It can be hazardous and distract workers trying to make repairs. If you see barricades blocking a street, they ask you to find another route.
